One of Chicago’s premier small event spaces, The Joinery occupies a small building that served variously as a mop handle factory, a letterpress warehouse, and a workshop for a custom cabinetmaker--inspiring its name and decor today. The new owners unearthed great artifacts in their minimalist renovation of the brick and timber structure, including old marketing signage, a 100-year-old bandsaw, a sanding belt, and a 2-ton safe, some of which have been made into decor and furniture for the space. The innovative re-purposing infuses the space with new design elements that complement the building’s preserved history. The Joinery hosts everything from weddings to pop-up dinners and non-profit fundraisers.
Enter through the side patio to check out the main space with its dramatic industrial skylight, as well as the speakeasy and working wood shop.
